Land Use and Development

It’s your property, but using it as you see fit is not always as simple as it should be.  Lemanowicz LLP can help you negotiate the obstacles to the maximization of your real estate’s potential.   Early engagement of the firm will help you plan your project, identify issues, and prepare for the unforeseen problems that inevitably arise during the land use approval process.  

Attorneys at the firm regularly appear before planning and zoning boards throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey to obtain the necessary permits for real estate development projects.  If approval is withheld by the municipality, the firm is prepared to litigate the matter in state or federal court.  Lemanowicz LLP attorneys are well-versed in the complex state regulations that often govern real estate development.  This expertise includes a thorough knowledge of the rules and procedures of the New Jersey Pinelands Commission, through which the firm has sheparded a wide variety of matters.

Lemanowicz LLP provides counsel at each stage of the real estate development process, including financing, due diligence, insurance issues, and the negotiation of construction contracts.  Lemanowicz LLP also advises clients in zoning enforcement and permit defense matters,  environmental regulation, and historic preservation proceedings.  The firm manages lawyers in other jurisdictions and selects expert witnesses when their services are required.
